it over the last 8 years is to take out a credit card from the bank of china in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion from the first 42 presidents, number 43 ed a $4 trillion by his lonesome so we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we're going to have to pay back. $30,000 for every man, woman and child. that's irresponsible. it's unpatriotic. >> so, unpatriotic. >> the hypocrite in chief says in 2008 that 5 from is unpatriotic but now we're up to $16.4 trillion. that's okay. by the way we move my credit card limits. he doesn't want a debt ceiling going forward. >> debt ceiling no more can congress deal when the president says we're going to raise the debt ceiling. no squabbles back and forth. >> let me get this straight. borrow $4.8 billion a day and now we're coming to the edge ever the fiscal cliff. republicans are saying hey, let's continue the bush tax cuts, let's make this fair for everyone but let's stop spending. we are spending more than we have. democrats are saying now they are saying it doesn't matter, we are not focused on the deficit any
but also offer a great opportunity. you see, what i find in africa today is that china has an increasing presence on that continent. china has a plan when it comes to the future of africa. america does not. that's why i'm going to offer as an amendment to the tag bill, which is currently pending before the senate, the american jobs through greater exports to africa act. my partners on the bill are senator chris coons, senator ben cardin, john boozman and mary landrieu, as well as support in the house from representative chris smith. at the heart of this bill is the creation of jobs in america. exporting more goods to africa will help create jobs here. every $1 billion in exports supports over 5,000 jobs. i believe we can increase exports from the united states to africa by 200% in real dollars over the next ten years, and we can't wait any longer. if there are some who say africa is so backward and so far behind, what is it in the united states they can afford to buy if they even wanted to, that is old thinking. let me give you some new reality. in the past ten years six of the world's f
year old yuee y ao who was visiting her new grandchild from china. the judge sat at unisys bail at $2 million. if she posted she must wear a scram device to make sure she does not drink and she is not allowed to drive. she will be back for our arraignment on december 31st. approval ratings for president obama and his cabinet i mixed. a new poll shows 52 percent of people surveyed approve of the president's performance while 43 percent disapprove. vice-president joe biden number is wet and art but in line with the president. 54 percent approved is the performance of 40 percent do not. presley michelle about has a 73 percent approval rating. >> and delta also the majority of americans support stricter gun laws but mostly against banning assault weapons. 58 percent of americans now say they support stricter gun laws and that is up from 43% in october 2011. the american public is split on enforcing existing gun laws instead of passing new ones 46% of the public wants and forced her loss of 47 once new legislation. education officials and officials at santa cruz city schools are expected t
union and nazi germany. communist china killed far more of those two tyrannies combined, with no christian heritage to speak of. there are serious scholars that makes serious arguments that there is something and luther's temperament that was germanic. he was no democrat. the more, the merrier. religious factions or alternative sources of social authority. what you want is a society in which the state does not monopolized social authority. >> you talked extensively about religion in the united states contributing to [inaudible] there is one particular force that think they can inflict their views on this country. they insist said it was the intention of the founding fathers to create a christian equivalent of iran, which i do not think is the case. just because you are religious, it does not make you write all the time. >> get in line with everybody else. with respect, i disagree with what you just said. the religious right, which i obviously am not a member, rose after the religious left in the form of the reverend martin luther king and jesse jackson, etc., etc. the re
deal, it will be one of the largest ever by chinese investors. china's state owned oil giant c-nook swooped in to acquire nexen for a cool $15 billion. note to the obama administration, it is not happening in a bubble. last year you'll recall the obama administration put off a decision on the excel pipeline, an extension of a pipeline that would connect the oil in alberta to the gulf of mexico and international markets. the democrats killed it because of concerns from environmentalists. the proposed route crossed the aquifer in nebraska and white house and state department officials could have just insisted on rerouting the pipe, but they didn't. a bad move, one that was highly thought to play to the president's base. now that the elections are over, a review of a new route will begin sometime next year. the leakages of that pipe were a minor concern, though it got all the headlines. a more legitimate environmental concern is carbon emissions. processing crude that is mined from the oil sands emits double the emissions of regular drilled oil. but oil sands still -- that still s
lines of mac computers in the u.s. next year. the company will spend $100 million to ship from china. apple began making the computer in the u.s. but began outsourcing in the mid'90s. and parent company with t- mobile reached a new deal with apple. t-mobile had been the lone holdout among the four national retailers in the u.s. in new york, i'm alexis christoforous. >>> a wisconsin teen is crashing in on an ugly holiday tradition. christmas sweaters. 18-year-old jack mccarthy collects ugly sweaters in his basement and sells them on his website. the sweaters that he fetes from flea markets, yard will sales, and thrift stores sell for about $20 to $40. he ships about 40 out a day. that's a great idea. and it works. >> i know. i wish i had it. not the sweater, the idea. >> are the sweaters now replace the fruitcake? >> maybe. as holiday gift to have. >>> still ahead on eyewitness news at 4:00. a judge in the deadly meningitis outbreak case, makes an unusual ruling. >>> the suspect in the fatal subway attack is being held without bail. hear from t

, china and india in particular are actually the source of most of the increasing greenhouse fasts that we've seen in recent years and the united states is at a level of greenhouse gas emissions it hasn't been at in over a decade. so, partially due to our own repressed economy, but partialingly due to the fact that you're talking about regulations and alternative fuels, the u.s. economy and other industriallized economies have actually seen their emissions stabilize or even fall over the past decade. >> yeah, and china, they're a big polluter. i mean, if you go into a store and you break something, you pay for it. so, if we can prove that a country is a big polluter, why shouldn't they pay? >> the problem is that even if the united states, all the other stilllized countries complied with what the secretary-general was talking about, it actually wouldn't do anything in terms of greenhouse gas emissions because the growth in the greenhouse gas emissions is coming with the developing world and it would be almost symbolic gesture in terms of global warming which is their theory and do nothing
he came from, back to china, but his home country, our good old buddies, the chinese, refused to take him back. they didn't want him, and so they stalled and stalled and stalled, and over those three years of chinese stalling and gave him the run-around, chen was eventually free and free to kill and kill he did. mr. speaker, this tragedy is not an isolated phenomena. flafflet, other americans have died as a result -- unfortunately, other americans have died as a result of a gaping hole in the immigration system. it's no secret that everybody believes our immigration system is broken. fixing it down the road will be complex and complicated, but there's some things we can do about immigration right now to fix specific problems and here's one of these. currently, mr. speaker, thousands of criminal aliens are in our country, just like chen, that have committed a crime, gone to prison, our immigration worked to order them deported but their country won't take them back. they refuse to do so, so those countries stall and delay and eventually never take back their outlaws. so by law when the
three behind canada and china, about $460 billion a year. so lot of levers we can use here. of that $460 billion, a huge amount is tourism. is it really worth them sort of gaining this venal corrupt image with this violence. do they want o pay the millions and millions, possibly hundreds of millions in lost tourism just so they can do whatever it is that the corrupt local government is doing to this? >> steve: one of the things is this guy is being charged with is he brought into the country of mexico a gun used by the military, ammunition used by the military as well. you know what? that is flat out not true. this is a case that is so easy to dismiss and yet, we're five days away from christmas and that guy is sitting down there. >> brian: it takes some high ranking person in the state department to pick up the phone and say, get him out of there. >> steve: how about the president? they've got cable in the white house. they're watching fox news channel. that would be great for that family if he -- >> brian: even they get satellite dish. even if it's direct tv, they probably still get us
look at china in particular, they are looking for corporate bonds rather than u.s. treasury securities because they do not like what they see. we are living on borrowed time. we have created another bubble. my view is the reason the fed is doing that is because the mandate was changed in the late 70's to where they have to be concerned with unemployment. we need a fiscal deal. the fed has to change its policy because both are imprudent and unsustainable over time. >> right. >> one of the most successful physical consolidations in the developed, democratic world in canada, in the mid 1990's, and i ask the canadian politicians how did you do it? the public went from cheering on spending to deficits within a matter of a year or two. the government in canada now risks some peril if they do not balance their budget. the answer you most frequently get is all they had to do was say, 40% of revenues was going to pay the interest bill on the canadian debt, and the public immediately realized that was not a great idea. we cannot make that argument. we run these massive deficits and because inter
the russian point of view was that gorbachev also wanted to improve relations with china and japan. and with 100 inf missiles directed at him, how was he going to do that? it's really not in their interest to have 100 missiles out of europe. and it was really in their interest. now, we now have access, have for some years, records of the polit bureau discussions. and let me go back to a couple words about president reagan. before he first met gorbachev, he wrote out on a yellow pad several pages, without any prompting from anybody, what he wanted to achieve in geneva in his first meeting. this was handed literally to me as we are getting off the plane in geneva, saying this is what the president has on his mind. if he is wrong somewhere, we will have to straighten him out. actually, it was a very, very precise paper. and among other things, he pointed out that our biggest problems, one of these was a lack of trust. that he had to find a way to begin to create trust. we're not going to solve anything else. he also had it, if i don't achieve anything else, i must convince gorbachev t
over time. and if you look at china in particular, they are now looking for corporate bonds and alternative investments rather than u.s. treasury securities because they don't like what they see and understandably so. we are living on borrowed time. we have created another bubble. my view is the reason the fed is doing that is because their mandate was changed in the late 70's to where they have to be concerned with short-term unemployment. in the absence of the congress and president working together to get a fiscal deal, they're the only game in town, so we need a fiscal deal and then ultimately the fed has to change its policies because both are improve -- in britain and unsustainable over time. >> the most successful physical consolidations in the developed democratic world occurred in canada in the mid-1990s. and i frequently asked canadian politicians, how did you do it? because the public point from cheering on spending to an abhorrence of deficits within a matter of a year to. so governments in canada now, there is some peril if they don't balance the budget. and the
